FLORIDA HISTORY TIMELINE : DEPRESSION AND THE NEW DEAL YEARS IN FLORIDA, 1930-1941
State government began to represent a larger proportion of its citizens. Female citizens won the right to vote in 1920, when the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution became law. In 1937, the requirement that voters pay a "poll tax" was repealed, allowing poor African American and white Floridians to have a greater voice in government.
